High Speed Asynchronous Arbiter

Lookup NU author(s): Professor Alex Yakovlev



We present an asynchronous circuit for an arbiter cell that can be used to construct cascaded multi-way arbitration circuits. The circuit is completely speed-independent. It has a short response delay at the input request-grant handshake link due to both (a) the propagation of requests in parallel with starting arbitration, and (b) the concurrent resetting of request-grant handshakes in different cascades of a request-grant propagation chain.
